These scrapers were collected from a Morris County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1923 and 1980. They are made of local chert from the Flint Hills region. Scrapers such as these may have been hafted on a handle and used to scrape hides. The scrapers would have required periodic resharpening.
